GRiZ – POLDOORE – ST JAMES – R.O – SPARKLING BITS
Today at age 24, GRiZ (Grant Kwiecinski) is already being hailed as visionary. With assists from rapper Talib Kweli, Afrobeat-group Antibalas, the L.A.’s Children’s Chorus, and others, his new full-length finds a golden mean between an abundance of brass instruments, liberal use of soulful vocals, and shimmering, synth beats.
Previously supporting Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, and Big Gigantic on their respective tours, GRiZ has played festivals such as Coachella, Electric Forest, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Lightning in a Bottle, Governor’s Ball, Diplo’s Mad Decent Block Parties, and more.Thanks to his success, he’s created his own label, All Good Records.
Humble and honest, Poldoore is an emerging producer and DJ from Belgium who crafts distinctive melodies and textured sounds that look to the future whilst taking cues from the past. His productions cover a cross section of soul, jazz, hip-hop and electronica. The result is a strong catalogue of smooth electronic music you can groove to, which is youth tested and elder approved.
St-James is a band composed of high school friends. For them, the main focus is the public: people bouncing, jumping, clapping and all that together. St-James started up in Brussels in 2007. For the past few years, St-James has performed live in many Belgian and international events.
St-James’ spectrum covers different types of musical styles; this is why their music cannot be easily labeled. Their inspiration is a mixture of Hip-hop, Soul and Funk vibes merged with Electro and Dubstep beats. Their influence goes from Daft Punk, The Roots, Prodigy to Pretty Lights and even Audio Bully’s.
Olivier Rugi aka R.O is a 22 years old producer from Belgium. He discovered electronic music with Hip hop and Dub at first and that’s probably why you can find these influences in his music. He plays Guitar, piano and Bass, and you can hear each of them onto his different productions. He loves to mix it with huge bass and electronic instruments. His first track, «Round one» was uploaded by the youtube channel «Darkstep warrior» and that’s the beginning. After his first EP on the belgian label Sons of Beat Records, he began to produce glitch-hop and funky bass music and released his first Glitch-hop EP with Adapted Records, called «Nova».
Sparkling Bits is made of two Belgian producers formerly known as Hybr!dz and Kid Whisky. They met through a common passion for music and began working together back in 2005. In 2010 they decided to join forces and created «Sparkling Bits». With this new name they define their new musical identity at the crossroads of abstract hip-hop, jazz, world music, electro and a sparkle of acousmatic. They like to mix sound sources from different origins to achieve a rich and colorful music. They attach great importance to the organic side of music in a way that the different sounds meet and interact with each other. It‘s with love that they hope sharing their vision of music with the public.
